OnePlus rolls out new Android 7.0 update to 3 and 3T, bringing fixes...and some known issues

Last week, with just a few hours of 2016 remaining, OnePlus fulfilled its promise to begin the rollout of its Android 7.0 update to its two flagship phones, the 3 and 3T, before the end of the year. Following the release of OxygenOS 4.0, the company has now made a new update available, which addresses some problems - but also includes some known issues.

OxygenOS 4.0.1 has now started rolling out, and along with the improvements in the 4.0 update, it also includes these additions:

  • Updated APN settings for select carriers
  • Fixed proximity sensor bug during calls
  • Increases system stability

However, OnePlus has also warned of the following known issues, including possible workarounds for two of them:

***Known Issues and Fixes

  • Apps might not download from Play Store.
    • If you are trying to download via Data Roaming, it will not work. This is a known Google issue.
    • Please follow Google’s troubleshooting steps and see if the problem is resolved.
    • Try turning on Battery Saving Mode and reset Play Store app preferences.
    • If you have these 3 apps installed: Truecaller, AVG Antivirus and PayTm, please try to force stop or uninstall them before performing download from Play Store.
  • If you still experience mobile data issues caused by APN, please go to APN settings page and manually choose try all the options. In the case that mobile data is still unusable, please send me a pm along with affected career and device model.
  • WiFi connectivity might still fluctuate, if you experience this issue, please send me a pm.

OnePlus says that this is an "incremental roll-out" of the update, which means that it will gradually make its way to all 3 and 3T handsets in the days ahead.
